1975 Martin Acoustic Guitar w/hard case
One of the finest sounding Martin D-35 guitars as we have ever had the pleasure to play - this just came into the shop. It is in great condition with original blue Martin hard shell case. The condition (and sound) of the guitar is beyond all expectations. There are a few light scuffs, dings, scratches and tiny marks here and there but, considering it is 43 years old- it is quite clean! It does have a replaced black pickguard over-the-finish and has been re-lacquered. This has the somewhat rounded corner headstock shape as was common to the time, the old style C F Martin headstock logo - gold with a black border; it has six Grover Rotomatic nickel-plated tuners, a crème bound fingerboard, a top that's bordered in 5 plies of crème and black purfling. The twin angled backstripes are crème-black-crème and the center wedge on the back is lighter in color rosewood than the two extremes. The center wedge almost looks like Brazilian rosewood but we think not - the change over to East Indian began in 1970 and by long before 1975 we believe they had run out of small pieces of Brazilian. But that one piece sure looks like it, and there's nothing wrong with looking like Brazilian rosewood. This is a great instrument and is more than ready for a new home!
